At this time last year, I was finally regaining stability with my seizures. After having fought through a difficult period in the summer of 2011, I was starting to feel well again. My neurologist increased one of my medications and things seemed to be going ok.
However, in April I began to have side effects (including chest pain & decreased weight) that the increased dose of my anti-seizure medication was too much for my system. By the end of May, I knew something had to change. When my neurologist lowered my medication back down to the previous dose; the side effects stopped, but my seizures were back.
